I have installed compiz in my xubuntu 11.10 desktop -- x64. I was trying to figure out how the workspaces work in this new set up. Now I have a problem that I need to resolve before I can get back to fix the original problem.
The problem is this: with shift + alt + mouse middle button, a menu came up where it showed an option saying I could add a workspace. I did that. This second workspace is a black diagonal from top left to bottom right. Nothing else works once that comes up. In that menu, there is another option that says to remove the workspace. That doesn't work.
Hope someone can help me remove that.
And then point me to some literature re workspaces in compiz/xubuntu 11.10. I think workspaces became rather complicated after the compiz install.
